History[edit]

Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 13th century,[3] Gregory and Aland to the 14th century.[4][2] Actually it is dated by the INTF to the 14th century.[6]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Johann Martin Augustin Scholz, who slightly examined the whole manuscript.[7]

It was examined and described by Giuseppe Cozza-Luzi.[8] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4] Herman C. Hoskier collated the text of the Apocalypse.[9]

Formerly it was labeled by 161a, 198p, and 69r. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 628 to it.[1]

It was examined and described by Ernesto Feron and Fabiano Battaglini.[10]

The manuscript currently is housed at the Vatican Library (Ottobonianus gr. 258), at Rome.[2][6]
